The symbol shows the location of the Belmont (Lincolnshire, England) transmitter which serves 710,000 homes. The bright green areas shown where the signal from this transmitter is strong, dark green areas are poorer signals. Those parts shown in yellow may have interference on the same frequency from other masts.

Are there any planned engineering works or unexpected transmitter faults on the Belmont (Lincolnshire, England) mast?

dave : If everything you have said preceding - "on freeview i got break up all the time" - is referring to Freesat signal levels? then variation in levels between channels is quite normal, as jumping about satellite channels not only involves receiving signals broadcast on different polarities but also from different transponders, i.e: the satellite equivalent of transmitter.

As far as your box freezing etc, if the previously mentioned "is" applicable i.e: Freesat, although the signal levels given are perfectly OK, try observing one of the channels for at least a minute or so watching for any signs of intermittent dips in quality, as this can result in intermittent freezing of the picture / audio squeaks etc, if evident? then the problem could be caused by a less than perfect fitting of the "F" connector at each end of the coax.

Another possible reason, being that the satellite dish has been positioned where it doesn't have a completely clear view of the S/SE skyline and is being intermittently obstructed by tree foliage etc. (usually shows up more on windy days)

That said, some Freesat boxes (Bush / Goodmans etc) have a reputation for glitching for no apparent reason, maybe you could mention the brand you happen to be using?

Intermittent complete signal loss. A quick check at Facebook and it would appear that everyone else in Beverley, East Yorkshire, is experiencing the same problems. So why on earth does this site still state that there are 'no problems reported?

B Singleton: Good morning Bee. I am so sorry to hear that you have lost Freeview logical channel numbers 1 to 5 and many more channels. You ought to check first of all that your neighbours have lost reception too, then the chances are that it is not down to your individual setup. I assume you get your signals from Belmont, for which there are no reported issues or engineering works currently. I have noticed this morning that we have high atmospheric pressure which could cause Belmont to reflect its signals up in the atmosphere, causing them to interfere with signals using the same channels from a transmitter elsewhere in the country ( or even abroad!). Wee call this "co-channel interference" or "CCI" and it could cause you to lose reception at your location. What you are entitled to do is to contact the programme providers for the programmes you can't get so that they can investigate for you. I hope all this will help you, Richard, Norwich, Monday 6th. June at 10:25 a.m.

What was the point in changing from analog to digital, if we keep loosing signal? It's about time these problems where solved. Please, don't bother giving me the rubbish about atmosphere interfering with the signal, this should have been thought out of long before we ever made the switch!

Tony Denton: Good morning Tony D. The atmosphere used to wreak havoc with analogue signals even more than it does with digital terrestrial television: one would have to switch off the tv for hours on end, hoping that when one returned that one would have a watchable picture. The switch from analogue to digital cannot, therefore, be blamed for signal loss due to atmospheric conditions: it is not a case of "thinking anything out" because there is nothing to think out, other than suggesting that tv viewers switch to 'Freesat' or view tv online when these high atmospheric conditions prevail. One is, however, entitled to inform the programme providers that one is unable to watch the programmes using the 'Freeview' platform, so that they may contemplate the situation, however they are unlikely to suggest anything more than I have suggested in this post. I am sorry that your loss of 'Freeview' signal is causing you such great consternation, Richard, Norwich, Monday 6th. June, 10:50 a.m.

B Singleton: The explanation is on the Digital UK website, Bee: "Latest News: Some viewers living on the East Coast of England or Scotland may experience temporary disruption to their TV signal today due to high pressure. We advise that you do not retune - reception will return to normal once this weather system passes." Quote/unquote!, Richard, Norwich, 11:20 a.m.

This often manifested itself as horizontal bars on an Analogue signal. In the Lincoln area, Central ITV was often affected and when it was, it was often possible to get a signal from the TVS transmitter at Hannington as well as many Belgian and German stations

If you have no satellite signal, see Sky Digibox says 'No Signal' or 'Technical fault'

If you have other problems, please provide a full (not partial) postcode (or preferably enter it in box at the top right) and indicate where if aerial is on the roof, in the loft or elsewhere.
